‘Legion’ Showrunner Noah Hawley on Putting a Unique Spin on the ‘X-Men’ Property

Showrunner Noah Hawley, who had such a compelling and original take on Fargo for FX that it’s become one of the must-see shows on that (or any) network, is now taking on Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz. In the trippy series, David Haller (Dan Stevens) is a troubled young man who was diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, leading to him being in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years, but he may not actually be sick, at all. When David meets a troubled new patient named Syd Barrett (Rachel Keller), the two are inexplicably drawn to one another and David must confront the shocking possibility that what is happening to and around him is a result of him being more than human. During a recent conference call to promote the series debut, executive producer/writer/pilot director Noah Hawley spoke to members of the media about developing this unique take on a superhero story, collaborating with the network throughout the development, bringing a sense of inventiveness and whimsy to the material, having such a high-stakes lead character, finding the look of the show, what this genre allows you to explore, how much inspiration he draws from the comics, portraying mental illness, giving his actors extensive music playlists, and how he’s juggling everything that he’s got going on now.
